Livermore, Calif./Capelle a/d Ijssel, the Netherlands — Sokkia’s latest addition to its iM line of manual total stations is designed to provide powerful performance in an affordable package — the iM-50.

“Whether operators need an instrument for jobs such as site layout or perhaps as-built survey, the iM-50 offers the perfect solution with high-end performance and exceptional functionality,” said Ray Kerwin, director of global surveying products.

The iM-50 EDM features a prism range of up to 4,000 meters and up to 500 meters in reflectorless mode with a 1.5 mm/2 ppm accuracy.

“The beam can precisely measure walls, corners, manholes on the road surface, even chain-link fences and tree branches. It offers a rapid distance measurement of 0.9 seconds regardless of the target,” Kerwin said.

The instrument offers integrated Bluetooth technology for connectivity with the controller. Additional features include 50,000 points of internal memory, or up to 32GB USB flash drive external support, SDRbasic on-board software, and IP66 certification for operation in tough job site conditions.
